Day 219 – Venice, Italy

This morning we departed Verona by train and headed towards Venice. After checking into our hotel and dropping off our bags, we took a bus to Venice’s city center where we began our walking tour of this historic metropolis (dating back to 421 AD). Venice is simply AMAZING! It is unlike anything I have ever seen before. Built on a lagoon, Venice is an incredibly romantic place with its maze like narrow roads and intersecting canals. One can’t help but immediately fall in love with it.

  1. Are you going to cross paths with Sarah and Mike while you’re all in Italy?

    • Hi Todd… unfortunately we won’t get the chance to cross paths as we are only passing through Northern Italy on our way to Poland (Sarah and Mike are currently in Siena – way south of us). We will be returning to Italy at a later time to fully explore this amazing country.

  2. Venice definitely looks like fun! I think I see remnants on some buildings of the flood they had a few years ago. I hope that the water and canals don’t smell, as they did in India! LOL

    I see that Ryan found a razor! LOL

    • LOL… yes Ryan “occasionally” shaves off his beard🙂

      Venice is definitely showing its age. No, it did not smell (not any more than any other European city).
